Story behind the temple
Some merchants from Tamil Nadu came to Malabar for business and they settled here. Among them there was an old man who was a devotee of Madurai Meenakshi and he  used to travel from Kerala to Madurai regularly to visit Devi.

He was growing old but he kept going to Madurai and he he prayed to goddess Meenakshi telling that he was afraid how long he would be able to travel and visit Devi.

On his way back to home he took bath in a pond keeping his umbrella on the bank of the pond. After his bath when he tried to lift the umbrella he couldn't. He became astonished and an astrologer was brought and he found the presence of Goddess Meenakshi there.

He understood that Madurai meenakshi devi has decided to stay in this  place called Pallassena. A small temple was constructed immediately.The place is now called Kudamannu.
